    I haved the recipe and they turned out amazing! Wernt too sweet! I ended up doing them in a cupcake Pan and I only baked them for 30 min at 350 degrees F. I think next time I’m going to try and glaze a sugar butter on the top kinda like Famous Dave’s 😊

    This was very good. The family loved it. I followed some of the other suggestions and reduced the amount of sugar. I only used a cup and it was just the right amount of sweetness. The batter made two 9 inch pans.

    This makes a lot! I cut the recipe in half and was still able to make a dozen muffins. I also cut the sugar from 2/3 to 1/2 (per 2 serving ), I will cut it even more next time.

    perfectly done in cast iron pans. A touch too sweet, reduced sugar second batch. Many compliments from family and friends. This is a keeper!

    Amazing! I add extra honey and sprinkle brown sugar on top for some added sweetness and it is so moist and sweet.

    I substituted in whole wheat flour and cashew milk and baked it in silicone muffin cups so I was very pleasantly surprised when they turned out! It took 25 minutes per batch. It was moist and a little denser then your average cake but I found the texture and flavour quite enjoyable. They popped out of the muffin cups like they never wanted to be there in the first place.

    I found the cornbread to be to crumbly for my liking.

    LOVED this recipe. Will definitely make it again. Only thing I found is that the portion was too large for a family of 3. Halved all the ingredients and it was perfect!

    Very good. Would make it again. Next time I’d increase cornmeal though (and decrease flour).

    Ok but too much flour, not really a corn bread IMHO. I like recipes with sour cream or yogurt in them to keep it moist but I thought I’d try something different.

    It was pretty good but next time I would use less flour and more cornmeal. It was cakey.
